Injury Law Suit Filed on Behalf of Chicago Woman Injured While Filming Transformers 3 Movie
October 14, 2010
I guess this was only a matter of time. I am still curious about how they will get around any release the victim may have signed with the film production company. I am going to follow this closely.
Attorneys from the Chicago-based law firm Power Rogers & Smith have filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures and other parties, contending that their negligence resulted in serious and permanent brain damage to a 24-year-old woman who was injured last month during the filming of Transformers 3.
The lawsuit, Romo v. Paramount Pictures et al. Case No. 10 L 011309, was filed last week in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois. The plaintiff is Adolfo Romo, guardian for Gabriela Cedillo.Cedillo, 24, was an “extra” working on the set of Transformers 3 in Hammond, Ind.
On September 1, 2010, Cedillo was among approximately 80 extras driving her own vehicle down a street that was being used for the filming of the movie. At the same time that she and others drove in the westbound lanes of the street, stunt vehicles were being towed by flatbed trucks in the opposing lanes in excess of 50 miles per hour.
